Dozens of earlier chapters have already shown the reader how debased these people have become.

There, because of the narrowness of the pavement, the door on the passenger’s side would have been little more than a hand’s-breadth from the wall, so in order saramato avoid the discomfort of dragging himself from one seat to the other with the uose and steering wheel in the way, the blind man had to get out before the car was parked.
